What to Wear for New Year’s Eve: 8 Outfits for Girls and Guys
Whether you think New Year's Eve is an overrated holiday or the one you look forward to most, one thing is certain: it's by far the best time of year to don your coolest party look. Here, eight men's and women's outfits to rock when the ball drops, plus some glittery bonus pieces to help you assemble an NYE style of your own.
Comfy Yet Festive NYE Looks
Yes, New Year’s Eve is traditionally a chance to get bling-y, but that doesn’t mean you have to sacrifice comfort. Girls, fool friends with stretchy faux leather leggings instead of tight leather pants, and top your look with a cozy animal print coat. Guys, go for a sleek all-black ensemble to disguise how low-key your clothes really are (or just carry around this chic flask and Polaroid camera, and no one will give your ‘fit a second look).
